Announcement of Not-for-Profit Committee and its Chair

In my final hours as EASL Chair, which ends at midnight tonight, I am delighted to announce the formation of a Not-for-Profit Committee and the appointment of Karen Kolodny as its Chair.

Karen holds two law degrees from McGill University (one in Civil Law and one in Common Law) and a Masters of Law (LLM) (First Class Honours) from Cambridge University. She is a member of the Bars of New York, Quebec and Ontario and she has practiced law in Canada, the United States, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Karen founded and runs the legal department at New York's preeminent cultural center, the 92nd Street Y, www.92y.org where she is also the Claire B. and Lawrence A. Benenson Director of the Milstein/Rosenthal Center for Media & Technology. At the Milstein/Rosenthal Center, Karen develops and oversees new-media projects. As Director of Legal Affairs, a position she has held since 2005, Karen is responsible for all legal aspects of 92nd Street Y, which has over 30 different business units.

Karen was the youngest member of the Canadian negotiating team for the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Negotiations (NAFTA 1990) and a clerk to a Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada. She has certificates in Arts Administration and Business Technology, both from New York University. Karen currently sits on three not-for-profit boards, two in New York and one in Pennsylvania.

Welcome aboard Karen! EASL looks forward to your inspired leadership.
